Tamiya 1/48 Scale Scale Vought F4U-1D Corsair

SKU: TAM61061

This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.

Here's Tamiya's rendering of the standard WWII-version of the finest propeller-driven fighter aircraft produced in the history of aviation (IMHO). Like the previous Birdcage version, this can be built with the wings extended or folded. Canopy can be open or closed. Flaps can be posed up or down. Comes with a pilot figure, but instead of the usual "seated in the cockpit" type, he's posed standing on the wing of the plane, with one hand on the fuselage. Includes two drop tanks, too. Markings are included for VF-84 on Bunker Hill (see box art), VMF-112 on Bennington, and VMF-913 at Cherry Point. There's no better kit of the Corsair.
